Cornelia Hoogland takes the story of Little Red Riding Hood and turns it inside out in this sensuous Canadian retelling. The woods and wolves are vivid and real, while Red herself is anything but a one dimensional girl-child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and smart As I write, Woods Wolf Girl is still a couple days away from publication. But the excerpted poetry from the book is gorgeous! Hoogland takes you down your own memory lane - comparing girlhood to the Red Riding Hood story, as well as connecting the fairy tale world to Canada's wilderness. The beauty of Hoogland's images, her spare style, as well as her simultaneously biting and rhythmic language makes the work within Woods Wolf Girl an absolute pleasure to read.

Editorial Reviews

"Poet and dramatist Cornelia Hoogland is an expert at spinning fables, and nowhere is this more evident than in the earthy sexual tension exploding between a B.C. Wolf and a girl named Red." - BC Book World

"Brilliant and stark, Hoogland's poems are an imagistic treat, green as tadpoles in a pickle jar, red as 'rain the shade of lips by Chanel.'" - Winnipeg Free Press
